a kill list targeting american citizens unconstitutionally, going about it in a shadowy way and defense intelligence bureaucrat. whether or not they're engaging in terror activity or planning an attack. incredibly slippery slope. the same democrats who are quiet now would be starting impeachment proceedings on this president. >> or can you imagine if, as robert gibbs said when he was asked about anwar al-awlaki's son being killed, he should have had a better father? could you imagine. they should not let this administration get away with it. >> alisyn: we appreciate you both talking about it. this isn't going away and great to hear your thoughts. as we mentioned the bush administration was hammered for its legal justifications on the war on terror and no one took more heat than alberto gonzalez. he's going to join us liver on an interview with the drone program. and teachers in one state are offering testimony on a lesson plan they're calling criminal and borderline unamerican. we're going to talk to the lawmaker leading the investigation into how this happened and whether this curricul
